You're too kind, an easy touch for strangers
You take them in, salvation for the wayward souls
Losers no one wants to know, vagrant love's got a place to go

When he's down and out, that's when you're attracted
Another victory in your personal crusade
I was all used up beyond repair, you picked me up

Chorus:
You were always right there when I needed you
You were there when I needed you (brought me back)
There when I needed you (recycled me back to love)
You were there when I needed you (brought me back)

It's the same old song, your patience made me fall for the doctor
That's your sign, you knew that I would be okay (you sent me on my way)
On to your next mission somewhere, like you saved me

Chorus

[Instrumental]

On to your next mission somewhere, like you saved me

Chorus

There when I needed you (recycled me back to love)
You were there when I needed you (brought me back)
